I'm using a centos 7 system as my master behind a corporate web proxy. How do I add the self-signed CA certificate of the proxy such that puppet will use and trust it?

I can access the puppetlabs modules using wget but not with 'puppet module'. The web proxy has a self-signed CA certificate which I have installed in the Red Hat ca bundle and the puppet-cacerts keystore. Using strace, I don't see puppet opening the keystore file before it spits out:

Error: Could not connect via HTTPS to Unable to verify the SSL certificate The certificate may not be signed by a valid CA The CA bundle included with OpenSSL may not be valid or up to date

It works after I linked /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl/cert.pem to /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem, to match the Red Hat configuration which links /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem to that file. Is there a better solution?

So the /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl/puppet-cacerts file is a red herring? What uses it?
